Western University (CSEB-Western)

Overview:

The mission of Western University’s Student Chapter of the Canadian Society for Epidemiology and Biostatistics – CSEB @WesternU – is to facilitate professional development, continuing education and research dissemination for students and recent graduates of the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Our specific objectives are to provide students with opportunities to expand their knowledge, facilitate student networking, and build enthusiasm and promote interest in epidemiology and biostatistics in the broader Western community.

Executive Team:

  • Chair: Youmi Dickson
  • Rest of executive team to be determined this semester

Examples of Past Events:

Research Horror Stories (Fall 2018)
“Students listened to a panel of Epidemiology and Biostatistics professors share their most memorable stories of research gone wrong. This social event helped students learn more about the many challenges researchers in epidemiology and biostatistics face in the work they do.”

Resume/CV Workshop (Spring 2019)
“A representative from Western’s Career Education center gave a presentation on writing effective resumes and cover letters. At the end of the presentation students had the opportunity to have a one-on-one consultation with the presenter to improve their own resumes/cover letters.”

Lessons Learned Outside the Classroom (Fall 2019)
“A panel of professors from the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics shared their life experiences, and provided tips and guidance related to graduate school and working after school.”

Barstool Research (Spring 2020)
“Barstool research is an opportunity for students to meet in a casual setting and engage in thought-provoking conversation about topics relevant to Epi and Biostats”
